Today was my very first day of work at my new job!
I've traded in my daily wardrobe of workout clothes for work clothes complete with high heels, which were a little hard on the ol' tootsies since I've been flip-flop and fancy free for a while now.
It was a pretty typical first day with paperwork and introductions. I did, however, send out a news release under my name (though my boss is really the one who wrote it), and will begin drafting two more releases tomorrow.
Seeing all the old reporter names I used to work with and trying to get up to speed on Wyoming news/issues I've fallen behind on gave me a "blast from the past" feeling. I was really involved with Wyoming stuff and people from Wyoming while in D.C., but getting back into the thick of things made me feel like I was in the senator's office again.
It's neat - and totally weird.
Here's something fun that I'm really looking forward to with my new job: Cheyenne Frontier Days is coming up and part of my job is to help manage media who are attending. The CFD has a rule that all media wear "cowboy attire" at all events, which means I must also cowgirl myself out.
The first event is Thursday evening.
I guess I should start polishin' up my boots!
